There are so many capable manufacturers and brand-owners who have come together to showcase their best, and it's nice that they have come to explore opportunities in the Middle East. The potential of Indian Apparel in the MENA region is huge. They possess technology, the competency, the people, passion and the raw material. They have the entire Infrastructure and the Middle East market is very lucrative. I think there is a big opportunity.'

While visiting Brands of India, Mr. Deepak Seth, Group Chairman, Pearl Global Industries Ltd. (PGIL) acknowledged “This a fantastic initiative. Indian Apparel brands have been showcased for the first time in this market. There's a huge potential in the Gulf, Middle East, Africa and Dubai is the central place for sourcing and buying for these markets.” 

Mr. Prem Ranjan, CEO, of Gini & Jony, a premium kidswear brand said, “Our experience at the Brands of India show has been wonderful. We have received queries from many GCC countries and also from Philippines and Malaysia. Some other participants also received enquiries from Uzbekistan and other Middle Eastern as well as European countries. Overall, we have created a base for future business development in a year’s time and hopefully we will be able to set up our local base. Since it was for the very first time we exhibited overseas, the exposure was huge in a sense that we were able to understand how we can help them grow their retail business. It was insightful on how to plan and go forward into GCC market.” Mr. Rushank Masand of Rushank Clothiers, another participant said 'This was the first time we have exhibited at an international fair in Dubai. It has been a lovely experience and met many new buyers. We are looking forward to the next edition.'

Some of the leading buyer groups at the show were distinguished entities from the Middle East such as Lulu Group, Landmark Group, Apparel Group, Yellow Flower Group, Snow White, BMA International, City Centre, Bait Awladona Co. (Kuwait) and Nesto. Their active involvement to source underscored the strategic importance of Brands of India in fostering strong business ties between India and MENA region. The dates were perfectly timed prior to the biggest and most significant Eid festival in April next year to re-stock latest fashion to meet consumer demand.  

Timing to host Brands of India was significant against the backdrop of CEPA agreement signed between India and UAE in 2022. UAE has emerged as the largest importer of Indian Ready-made Garments. In the fiscal year 2022-23, imports totalled a staggering US$ 1.21 billion. Notably, during the first seven months of 2023-24, UAE imports of Indian Ready-made Garments reached US$ 368.78 million underscoring sustained demand for Indian fashion in the region.
